"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage."- Roald Dahl
This week they will finish our study on poetry in class. After Monday, they will need to be working on their illustrations at home, too, since no class time will be given to them as work time. The final book currently is due eitherTuesday March 24 or Wednesday March 25. (If an extension is needed, the student will need to speak to me personally.)
We also will begin our Mystery unit with a vocabulary study. The students will have homework this week for their words study with a Vocabulary Quiz on Tuesday March 31st.
In addition, we will have our Picture Book Celebration on April 1st. The students are to invite their interviewee or members of their family in for an opportunity to read all of the books created by their classmates. The celebration will be 10:30 -1:15 a.m. for Block I (2nd and 3rd period), 8:50 to 9:30 a.m. for Block Split (1st and 6th period). and 2:50- 3:30 pm for Block II (7th and 8th period). The students can bring their favorite treats to share with the class while enjoying the books. We hope you can attend.
Let me know if you have any questions or concerns, Sincerely, Mrs. Becky Leffler GMSS seventh grade language arts email: email@example.com homework portal: lefflerr.weebly.com
